Laying the Foundations for 5G Network Slicing Management
Date / Time: Wednesday, May 5, 2021, 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London
sponsored by

5G E2E slicing provides an efficient and cost-effective way for CSPs to deliver a multitude of new services and business models each with a diverse set of requirements (speed, latency, connectivity) across an interconnected, heterogeneous network. 5G networks will span multiple zones, including the RAN, edge, transport, core and public clouds traversing network layers including optical, microwave and IP.

As 5G and E2E slicing become a reality, it has become apparent that multi-domain service orchestration will be crucial to the successful deployment of these new services, automating provisioning and activation as well as end-to-end lifecycle management of services across multiple domain-level network orchestrators. The sheer number of services and network changes required to support this diversity makes transport optimization and automation critical to the success of a 5G rollout.

Join this webinar to learn from Amdocs and Sedona experts about:

  • The latest related industry standards
  • The key role of multi-domain service orchestration
  • The crucial part transport plays in E2E slicing
  • How to guarantee SLAs over network slices that utilize both L1/L3 slices and how to interface into NSMF slice manager
